Oh no. There's that word again. My teenager can't complete a sentence without using that blasted 3 letter contraction. It drives me nuts, and here I've gone and done it. She does it because she only sees the world from her egocentric position and thinks she is always right. On the other hand, I have a more open mind and more experience in the world so my "but" is legitimate.
Mind you, I am not making excuses either. I really want to develop my own websites but..
You see, I have 6 kids although one is in college. Still I spend 1 hr and 15 minutes total commute time each day and work full time. It is 45 minutes each way to get the 4 youngest to gymnastics, and they are there 6 days each week. I have many days when I leave the house at 6 am and don't get home until 10 pm. I often get up at 4 or 4:30 just to have time to write what I do get done. So I don't view these as excuses but as reality.
I am a fairly quick study. I have often read something and been able to do it. Occasionally it takes more time which you can see is a limited resource, especially when it comes to learning something new. Nor am I really afraid of doing new things or failure either.
I have 2 website ideas, but I am simply thinking that time is at a premium and so I need to outsource some of the development. Which is why I am coming to my readers for assistance in this area. I know that several of you are more experienced than I am in development and design of websites. Some even did this and sold on Flippa. I have looked there for sites but would prefer to have my own project. Plus, I trust my readers more than some of the characters I have seen on Flippa.
That is why I am soliciting bids (and especially comments regarding viability from those with more experience) for these 2 projects. First, I would like to develop an article directory. There have been some for sale at Flippa, but I simply don't feel comfortable purchasing from some of those individuals. One has been up for 4 separate auctions. Of course, not having $3000-$5000 helps make my decision as well. I know that many sites are designed and sold for a few hundred dollars which is more my speed.
Second, I would like to develop my own authority website on financial topics. I know that the space is crowded. However, if you have taken the time to read most of my Hubs, you will find that it is a strong interest and passion of mine so it will be easier to work on it over a period of time than picking something I don't enjoy.
So, if you are looking for a client or could make a recommendation, I would sincerely appreciate it. I am not in an incredible rush and should be an easy-going client. I am also not necessarily inclined to take the lowest price but am looking for quality work at a fair price.
I understand that you might not want to conduct business via comments so feel free to contact me privately through my HubPages profile. It will be easy to access through the HubPages article links at the right. Also, feel free to offer any public advice or comments on this blog to help others who are reading and may be considering their own site as well.
I am thankful for the knowledge and expertise of my readers. I appreciate all the encouragement so far in this journey and am looking forward to the next several steps. So remember, I am not making excuses but simply outsourcing. LOL!
I am just a neophyte learning to make money online. I am excited about the opportunities and hope to share what I am learning.
I am also interested in real assets such as gold and real estate. I have a blog on these topics as well. Be sure to stop by and check out both my blogs.
